Dr. Jack Horner of Jurassic Park Fame Coming to SHSU

On Tuesday, April 2, 2013, Dr. Jack Horner, Regents Professor of Paleontology at Montana State University, will be speaking here in Huntsville as part of Sam Houston State University’s Distinguished Lecturer Series. Dr. Horner is a renowned paleontologist. He is the first to discover dinosaur eggs in the western hemisphere and has identified some of the first dinosaur embryos. He has discovered and even named a few species, such as the Maiasaura. Not to diminish any of those accomplishments, but he may be best known for serving as a technical adviser for all three Jurassic Park movies and was the inspiration for the Dr. Alan Grant characters in the novels and subsequent movies. Needless to say we are very excited to be hosting Dr. Horner on campus NEXT WEEK!
